Sunday 21st May 2017 Today was another busy day of chasing. We know that the latter half of the week is going to be quiet so we want to grab every opportunity we can. We stayed overnight in San Angelo with the view that we’d go to Amarillo today. Texas is a big ol’ place, [...]
Saturday 20th May 2017 Today felt the price of yesterday. After getting to bed at around 3:30am, I was up at 8am to get packed and ready to leave. I’ve noticed how tired I am but just how grumpy I am. I get like this when I’m truly exhausted. In many ways it reminds me [...]
Friday 19th May 2017 - Chasepalooza gets under way as we drive over 2000km in a day to get from Canada to Oklahoma in order to chase some storms

Tuesday 16th May 2017 - Here's the vlog I shot of my day of travel to get from London Gatwick to Winnipeg, Canada.
Tuesday 16th May 2017 It’s gone 2am in the morning, which makes it some ungodly hour in the UK, and means that since Sunday morning, I’ve had a total of about 8 hours sleep. As a result, my plan is to keep this edition fairly short and get some much needed sleep. I had to [...]
